A description of the experience
Dexamethasone is a type of steroid medication. It is used in the treatment of rheumatic problems, a number of skin diseases, severe allergies, asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease, croup, brain swelling, and along with antibiotics in tuberculosis, among others.
In adrenocortical insufficiency it is used together with a medication that has greater mineralocorticoid effects such as fludrocortisone.
In preterm labor it is used 'to improve outcomes in the baby' [sic].
It may be taken by mouth, as an injection into a muscle, or intravenously. The effects of dexamethasone are frequently seen within a day and last for about three days.
The long term use of dexamethasone may result in thrush, bone loss, cataracts, easy bruising, or muscle weakness.
